Osteothai is the integration of osteopathic principles and techniques into Thai massage, a bridge between east and West. It’s a form of bodywork that combines extraordinary creative and powerful Thai massage techniques with the precise and gentle touch of osteopathy.
Osteothai is practiced on the floor; the patient wears light comfortable clothing. The masseur uses not only his hands but also his feet, knees and elbows. This makes for a rich and colourful approach.
Osteothai combines :
- Traditional Thai massage’s varied and powerful stretches, using long leverage techniques across muscle groups (inspired by yoga postures), its acupressure work on energy lines and the creativity of dynamic movements of traditional Thai massage,
- Osteopathy’s release of tissue tension and work on restriction of mobility.
The Osteothai training is open to every serious practitioner who…
…has received a solid Thai massage training (not necessarily with us!)
…has a real Thai massage practice,
and eager to…
…develop the quality of touch and listening,
…gain a clear understanding of osteopathic principles and laws of the living,
…increase his/her therapeutic toolbox to become more precise and efficient.
